NET © Notes

sn Psalm 131. The psalmist affirms his humble dependence on the Lord and urges Israel to place its trust in God.

sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.

tn Heb “and my eyes are not lifted up.”

tn Heb “I do not walk in great things, and in things too marvelous for me.”
